Drew, like you said it’s not about changing the appearance of the form elements per se (for example, changing the style of a submit button so that it removes the bevels, the hover appearance etc, making it look less ‘buttony’). It’s more about making some kind of visual link between the two fields to make it clear that the text is ralted to a certain input and “hey look, it’s even clickable, see?”. That was the intention – to draw attention to the fact that if the form has a label, the text is clickable, not just the control itself.

However, I knew that this would have its detractors, just as people have issues with text resize widgets on a web page when it should really be the user agent itself that enables the user to do this.
